Salford fell to a disappointing 11-8 defeat to London Broncos at Ealing Trailfinders which means the Red Devils’ Super League status for 2019 remains unconfirmed.
London’s Jay Pitts grabbed the only try of the first half alongside a conversion, penalty goal and drop-goal from Jarrod Sammut. Winger Greg Johnson went over twice in the second half however missed conversions alongside another Sammut penalty consigned Salford to defeat.
Salford now find themselves in need of a win over Toulouse on Thursday to secure their status in Super League next season following two successive defeats. Their head coach, Ian Watson, headed straight for the team bus and did not speak to the media after the loss.
